How to heal bedsores


Q: My mother, who is 99 yars old, sprained her leg and has been unable to get out of bed for 3 weeks. She has developed on the bottom of her spine a bed sore the size of a 50 cent piece or larger. The sore is pretty deep, oozes some blood and puss(?) and the skin around it looks bruised and ready to burst too. I clean her twice a day and put an antibiotic cream on the sore,and everywhere else desitin. I also put her on her left and on her right side to relieve the pressure somewhat. Nothing has helped so far! I'm very concerned!!!
